at sfo on the runway. is weather going to be a problem for them as they look for the cause? >> at the ground level, they're fine. but for some flights, for the two runways that are still trying to manage flights around sfo and the other bay area airports, the fog is going to cause issues for arriving flights. they are in oakland. a wind pattern change in san jose is causing takeoffs from the south and landing from the north to south. that's due to the low clouds and the wind. strong sea breeze getting into fairfield, and high humidity levels into sacramento, letting you know the marine layer has punched it way in. we'll get clearing skies and then the low clouds are going to sweep back in even before sunset tonight. it's going to be a fairly cool day around the inner bay, over to oakland and san francisco, 60s and 70s. some 80s inland and then a warm-up. we'll shoi you that in a few minutes. >> hopefully the fog will burn off because the last thing sfo needs is more fog. >> breaking news to start in redwood city where a massive fire ripped through an apartment complex, bringing do

on 28 l was not working. it was a visual flight rule. so that's been confirmed by sfo. nothing wrong with that commercial pilots do it all the time. in this case, the plane made a steeper descent and essentially, got too low. it cost lift. it didn't have power. the pilot apparently tried to overcorrect, tried to get more air under him. get more lift. so essentially, pointed the nose of the plane up which is exactly what the witnesses say happened. and when he did that, you see he is still over the water. he is trying to get more lift and touchdown. when he did that, the nose went up, the tail went down and scraped along the rock barrier between san francisco bay and the end of runway 28 l. that apparently caused quite a hard hit. then the tail went off the plane and at that point, he lost all control of that airplane. in fact, it is quite fortunate that it was able to come to rest and so many people were able to walk off with very few injuries or no injuries at all. >> absolutely. thank you. if you're just now tuning in, here's what we know at this hour. some definitive number
